Henry Onyekuru has confirmed that a return to his parent owners Everton in January from his loan side Anderlecht is on the cards.
Yesterday Onyekuru took his goal tally for the season to six in ten games with his brace for Anderlecht against Mechelen, and shortly after the game he confirmed talks on a return from his loan spell was discussed last week in England.
Owngoalnigeria.com reported during the course of last week that the 20 year old was spotted in Liverpool, the city where Everton are based and the forward has now confirmed the report.
” It’s true I had a meeting with Everton last weekend and I’m expecting something. That’s all I can say. I hope to return to Everton in January, but we’re not in January, so all my concentration is on Anderlecht “, Onyekuru said.
Everton are struggling to score goals this season, a situation which has forced manager Ronald Koeman to look in the direction of the Nigerian who has rediscovered his scoring range after a slow start to life at Anderlecht.
Last season Onyekuru scored 24 goals for Eupen, a feat which earned him the move to Everton after snubbing a host of club including French League giants PSG.
